Because i don't want to include any logic in a page one of the
clueless web writers are writing. With this approach i have the chance
to centrally manage one stylesheet that generates and page going
through xsp and later through xsl without anything involved on the
user side.

What about something like:

a set of xml-tags that are controlled by the stylesheet they're
'piped' through. One central stylesheet with all the logic, one
central stylesheet with all the output. I don't see your problem with
that scenario. Or maybe i just don't see the better solution right
